It’s time to tell Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and the rest of the Democratic “Resistance” movement that their economic policies don’t work. It’s time they took a class I’d call “Economics for Dummies.”

The first principle of Economics for dummies is that companies making big profits spread that wealth around in the form of pay raises, promotions and expanding their companies. By comparison, companies operating in a stagnant economy, like what we had during the last administration, tend to be tight-fisted with their money.

Punishing companies with high taxes and excessive regulations doesn’t eliminate wealth creation. Instead, it incentivizes companies to hoard or hide their wealth. That leads directly to less upward mobility for those lower on the organization chart.

Until socialists like Sanders and Warren stop pushing their economic ‘gospel’, Democrats will keep underperforming in elections, including 2018.
